Professional Treatments for Acne in Dublin

There are several types of medical professional treatment procedures that can be performed to help control and treat your acne. These are the main acne treatments as follows to name a few, Light Therapy, Chemical peels, and Fraxel Laser.

Light Therapy – A lot of the rawness and inflammation that occurs with acne is due to bacteria and to get rid of this we need to reveal your skin to different light. Before you have this treatment performed, your doctor will rub on a medicated cream to your skin which will help it become more delicate to light. Your treatments may use blue light, red light, or a combination of them both.

Chemical Peels – This type of treatment controls the acne and improves the appearance of your skin. The doctor will rub on a minor chemical solution to your skin. This solution will help unclog pores and remove dead skin cells. It will also help to regrow new healthy skin.

Fraxel Laser – This is an effective acne scarring treatment. A non-ablative laser skin treatment that can resurface the skin, uncovering the younger skin underneath which will give you fresher looking skin and improved tone.


This procedure is performed by piercing the skin with small needles several times. This will generate microscopic channels in the dermis layer. The external layer of skin is not affected, but the body will observe the treatment which will then cause the area to produce fresh volumes of collagen. This collagen will help the skin to heal and reduce the scars that have been caused by acne.
